    You are far
    When I could have been your star
    You listened to people
    Who scared you to death, and from my heart
    Strange that you were strong enough
    To even make a start
    But you'll never find
    Peace of mind,
    'Til you listen to your heart
    You can never change the way they feel
    Better let them do just what they will
    For they will
    If you let them
    Steal your heart from you
    Will always make a lover feel a fool
    But you knew I loved you
    We could have shown them all
    We should have seen love through
    Fooled me with the tears in your eyes
    Covered me with kisses and lies
    So goodbye
    But please don't take my heart

    This song has to be the most under appreciated song in George Michael's library. Definitely my favorite. So smooth and mellow. George Michael was so ahead of his time. A master and a beautiful human being. RIP George! You are missed so much, especially by those of us that grew up with you.

      The music is smooth and mellow, but the lyrics are ferocious. The contrast is what makes the song memorable

      "under appreciated" ? By who ?

      This song was the fifth or six single to be released from his Faith album. I believe it reached number one in the adult contemporary charts and eight in the hot billboard 100s. At the time it was definitely very unique for what was being played out on Pop radio. This song is pure genius and sounds just as fresh today as the day it was released. I instantly loved this song when it came out because it showed a whole other side of George’s immense talent.

      @A. M. Well your experience is not my experience. I don’t know what part of the world you live in. But I remember seeing this video on MTV and hearing it on the radio.

    This song is PURE perfection. It has everything. Raspy voice. Bass. Piano. Retro bluesy sounds. Silk and smooth lyrics. The right amount of jazz.
    George Michael is pure perfection.

    This is by far my favorite George Michael song. I never get tired of listening to it. It is soulful, sexy and with his beautiful voice it truly is perfection. He was one in a billion. RIP dear Georgios. We love and miss you more than words can ever say. ❤️ 💔❤️💔❤️

    My Brother-in-law is the sax player in the video. He told me that in between filming, they would sing Stevie Wonder songs. Said George was a gent through and through.

      I always felt he was a gentleman. You have just confirmed it. A true entertainer and he had class. Such a shame the tabloids always picked up whenever he took a wrong step.

    • Kitty
      Kitty Year ago +69

      I believe that he was a gent, like you say. After his death, so many people (some with approval of his family) came out saying how much good George had done helping so many people from all walks of life, quietly, without making it PR campaign at any point.

    This song really showcases George Michael's voice. His vocal dynamics were perfect; soft, breathy, then rising to a passionate crescendo, then back down to a soft, silky finish.
    This song almost makes me swoon.
    Oh, George, did you ever know what a gorgeous voice you possessed, and all the other musical gifts you had? You will never be forgotten. This song is proof positive of that. R.I.P George.

      @Dimitri Ath Lol, yeah, some of George Michael's videos have less-than-stellar dancing in them. For example, the "Faith" video and the one for "Wake Me Up Before You Go-go". Don't get me wrong; I love George Michael...but I like it better when he just sings.😁

      Sounds like the kind of record that would be released circa 1962-63 on the orange '2-eye' Columbia 45 label as on many a single of that period by Andy Williams, Tony Bennett, Robert Goulet, Patti Page, Steve Lawrence, Eydie Gorme et al.

    [Verse 1]
    You are far
    When I could have been your star
    You listened to people
    Who scared you to death and from my heart
    Strange that you were strong enough
    To even make a start
    But you'll never find peace of mind
    'Til you listen to your heart
    You can never change the way they feel
    Better let them do just what they will
    For they will
    If you let them steal your heart from you
    Will always make a lover feel a fool
    But you knew I loved you
    We could have shown them all
    We should have seen love through
    [Bridge 1]
    Fooled me with the tears in your eyes
    Covered me with kisses and lies
    So goodbye
    But please don't take my heart
    [Verse 2]
    You are far
    I'm never gonna be your star
    I'll pick up the pieces and mend my heart
    Maybe I'll be strong enough
    I don't know where to start
    But I'll never find peace of mind
    While I listen to my heart
    You can never change the way they feel
    Better let them do just what they will
    For they will
    If you let them steal your heart from you
    Will always make a lover feel a fool
    But you knew I loved you
    We could have shown them all
    We should have seen love through
    Ba da da ah ah ah
    [Bridge 2]
    But remember this
    Every other kiss
    That you ever give
    Long as we both live
    When you need the hand of another man
    One you really can surrender with
    I will wait for you like I always do
    There's something there
    That can't compare with any other
    [Verse 3]
    You are far
    When I could have been your star
    You listened to people
    Who scared you to death and from my heart
    Strange that I was wrong enough
    To think you'd love me too
    Guess you were kissing a fool
    You must have been kissing a fool

    George was just 24 years old when he wrote this song.... his voice, the lyrics, the melody, his heartfelt delivery of it... I am in such awe still 30 plus years later after its release... Sublime in every way.

    • Lars Lewis
      Lars Lewis Year ago +28

      What's truly amazing is that this song could have easily been a staple for all standards singers in the 50s-60s where could easily assume guys like Sinatra, Bennett, Martin, Torme, all of them would have loved to have given this a go had it been around then. George was magnificently talented.

    • James Owens

      I didn't know he wrote this song. I thought it was a song from way before. Have heard many singers cover it but none come close to this

    • PFCD
      PFCD Year ago +20

      @James Owens Yes George actually wrote this when he was part of Wham and didn't want to record it as he felt it didn't meet their image. It is one of my favorites of his which is again written from his personal life experience.

    I was so lucky to have lived to hear this song. 1986-87 were great years. Every year I listen to "Do They Know It's Christmas," and George Michael's voice sends chills down my spine. He was an angel sent down to us. I pray that when I die I will hear his voice in that ever-increasing choir of musicians. God bless him.

      @Patricia Moreno I understand what you're saying. However, when it comes to *this* song in particular, it just stands out. Simple as that.
      I remember constantly hearing this song on the radio as an 8 year old kid. I didn't even understand music back then the way I do now. Yet it always stuck with me. I guess what I'm saying is...this could easily be George Michael's greatest song of all time. In my humble opinion, anyway.

  • Toujours Ici

    This song was brand new when I was a little kid. I remember being absolutely mesmerized by it. The magic of this, is that now I'm *much* older and yet it strikes the exact same chords with me. Whatever exists inside of us that is timeless, whatever recognizes something that we love or that resonates with our soul whether we are a small child or an adult, this song has that for me. So to be able to listen to it throughout my life as the years go by and experience the same feeling each time is nothing short of spellbinding. I miss George Michael as an artist and I'll always be thankful to him for the magic of this song. ✨

    For an unknown reason, I've just realized, this has been my favorite song since the first time I heard it. I love everything of it the rhythm, the lyrics and definitely loved George"s voice and music as well. My children and now my granddaughter have heard his music all their lives but most of all "Kissing a fool" ❤

  • Anthony Ortiz
    Anthony Ortiz Year ago +51

    Such a beautiful song, and his voice! So damn smooth and warm, and that range... I try to sing this, but those parts where he transitions over to the high notes/falsetto and back ("So goodbye...." and "There's something there that can't compare...") are flawless, I *wish* I could sing like him!!! RIP man... this guy is a legend, his music is part of my nostalgic past and I will always treasure his songs.

    I remember buying this in January 1989 as a cassette single. I played it so much that it warped. Absolutely love the jazz chords/infusion here, his voice is velvet and the lyrics are so well written. To the young artists out there now making music, take note (pun intended)..... THIS IS HOW YOU WRITE A SONG.

    I love the spare instrumentation (only piano, acoustic guitar & bass), which puts George’s gorgeous voice in the spotlight. His smooth as butter voice & the ASMR quality of it are sheer perfection. It has the feel of a 1940’s jazz standard. This is something that would have appealed to Sinatra. Absolutely timeless.

    Absolute classic! Worthy of Sinatra covering this if he were alive. So mellow and exquisite in every way. A song I can listen to on repeat for an entire day. Thank you George.

      It is waaay beyond his other work. He did this live sometimes, with no special effects whatsoever, even when he had just survived pneumonia. The man was a vocal genius.

    George Michael. The best singer of all times. This mans talent knew no bounds, it was pure poetry from the depths of his soul.
    This song is a masterpiece that I could listen to on repeat for days on end.
    RIP George. I still can't believe you are physically gone.

    I was a teen in the 80's and this is one of many great songs I loved by George Michael. He never wanted to be remembered as just another cheesy pop star, but as a real artist. He reached that goal, I remember him as a real artist. RIP George Michael.

      I did twice on his faith tour.... Let me tell you. I’ve been to many many concerts. George Michaels still to this day was THEE BEST EVER concert! His entertainment of dancing and his voice was like it was lip synced. He was flawless. True gift to us all while he was on this earth.
      Thank you George. My growing up wouldn’t of been fun without you sir.

      He didn't make it easy for us to see him in the USA. He did a concert tour here and then didn't come back to the USA to tour for 17 years. Won money at the casino and was able to buy a good ticket to see him when he came back 17 years later. It was even got better. My seat ended up being behind the projector used for his light show. They had set up a special section on the floor for those of us that ended up having our view blocked by the projector. Jackpot again! Floor seats! He was fabulous! It was a fun concert. He died eight years later never to return to visit us.

    First, listen to the many layers of tonality he posses, then pay close attention to how smoothly he connects and phrases. The crescendo is musically challenging, yet he makes it seem effortlessly beautiful.

      This song is not romantic, it’s more a Melancholic type of song. The lyrics are “You are far, when I could have been your star 🌟, You’ve listened to people, who scared you to death and from my heart.” That’s not romance, it’s a song who’s heart has been broken.

    • Damon Randle
      Damon Randle 4 months ago +1

      The song does does express heartbreak. What makes it romantic is that he's pouring his heart and expressing heartbreak in his own way. Most songs like this can be both. I hear both.

      Like with all of George's music, he was so ahead of the curve that his music sounds like it could have been released last week. Although after the the trash that was performed at the January 2020 Grammy's, this generation most likely wouldn't appreciate the incredible talent of George Michael. What a shame at what passes for music today.
